Syria rejects reports about receiving Russian Special Forces

Damascus , Tue, 20 Mar 2012 ANI

Damascus, Mar 20(ANI): A Syrian military source has rejected reports about the arrival of Russian warships carrying military staffs on the Syrian shores.


"Those news come in the framework of the lie campaigns against Syria by some opposition sides and the countries that support them in order to cover calls for foreign intervention in the Syrian affairs," SANA quoted an unnamed source, as saying.


Russia's Defense Ministry had earlier admitted that the navy's Iman oil tanker arrived at the Syrian port of Tartus to assist Russian navy ships on anti-piracy patrols in the Gulf of Aden and for demonstrating the Russian presence in the turbulent region and possible evacuation of Russian citizens.


But a ministry spokesperson had refused to comment on how many troops are on board, Fox News reports.


Russia is a strong ally to Syria and has angered United Nations Security Council members by blocking repeated attempts to end violence in Syria. (ANI)
